Stax Inc., a global strategy consulting firm, is set to highlight and present the Sri Lankan advantage at an event tagged ‘Investment Opportunities in Resurgent Sri Lanka’ in collaboration with the Singapore Sri Lanka Business Council (SLBA), Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC) and the International Enterprise (IE). The event will take place on September 15, 2015, at The Tower Club.
The programme will be led by Stax Founder and CEO Rafi Musher and Stax Director Dr. Kumudu Gunasekera with the objective of informing Singaporean business leaders, including corporates, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and private equity firms on the investment opportunities available in Sri Lanka and emphasize how Stax as a leading strategy consulting partner could leverage potential investment opportunities based on extensive research and analysis.
Stax Managing Director Ruwindhu Peiris opined, “The key for our success over the two decades of our existence is that we’ve been providing corporations and private equity firms with clear, actionable, fact-based strategic advice on growth, profit. Our deep market knowledge across a myriad of industry verticals and a unique array of capabilities enables us to deliver best outcomes.”
